With Executive Leadership leveraging over 30 years of industrial and commercial roof preparation and cleaning experience, Recowa harnesses the power contained in EPDM and TPO-based materials to create tangible, usable, products and power sources.
Recowa makes the recycling of otherwise useless scraps of industrial waste both economical and simple, thereby saving you money, and protecting our planet.
Through our sister company, RK Hydro-Vac, Inc., we already have long standing relationships with nearly 10,000 companies across the United States. Together, Recowa and our partners are committed to generating both the economic and environmental benefits available in recovering waste from roofing materials.
We began with RK Hydro-Vac – dedicated to the roofing business with years of roof preparation experience. In addition to RK providing a full line of roof preparation services, we are also experienced in industrial and commercial vacuuming such as plant cleaning and water filtration systems.
RK Hydro-Vac was founded in 1981 in Covington, Ohio. Initially, much of the roof work was performed manually. This was hard work, low production, and an extremely dirty environment. Through constant research and development of our equipment and technique, RK has taken the roof preparation business into the 21st century with state-of-the-art technology.
These advances have enhanced the quality of service to our customers, provided a quality environment for our employees and a cleaner environment for our customer’s customer. Due to such achievements and by recognizing and meeting the needs of our customers, the name RK Hydro-Vac has become synonymous with quality service.
In 1983, a Regional Office was opened in Charlotte, North Carolina, to better serve our customers in the Southeast Region of the United States. In 1990, a Regional Office was opened in Pittston, Pennsylvania, to service the Northeast Region of the United States. Divisional Offices were opened throughout the states in 1999 to provide better customer support. As the demand for quality service increases, RK is expanding to meet those needs.
